Arrow Video USA is ravished by THE BEAST (review)

Walerian Borowcyzk's naughty take on the French legend of The Beast of Gevaudan (also the source for BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF) finds an American heiress in an arranged marriage to a French aristocrat's simple-minded son.  As their relatives manipulate and scheme to make the profitable union successful, the young heiress learns that the legend of a horny beast in the forest is no fairytale.
